Non-contact Metrology and Optical Measuring Systems

Our Vision Measurement Systems

In addition to our digital optical comparator, VISIONx, Inc. has worked with companies across various industries to create other non-contact metrology, visual inspection, and optical measuring systems. These vision measurement systems may include specialized configurations to meet specific requirements and solve challenging applications. Large-travel motorized systems for heavy parts, manual stages, multi-camera systems, turnkey systems, and more are available to meet our clients' inspection and measurement requirements.

Benefits of an Optical Measurement System

Our vision measuring systems drive value for various production and shop floors.


Fast data capture is a primary benefit of investing in an optical measuring device. Our solutions can quickly measure across thousands of data points in mere seconds for a complete workpiece picture. That speed makes them ideal for high-volume production and increased throughput.


Thanks to the large variety available, our optical measurement systems are versatile equipment for many production environments. We offer custom engineering to create systems tailored to your unique application needs. Our customizable options include lenses and magnification, working distances, illumination, measurements, workholdings, and much more.

Plus, our systems are compatible with both manual operation and fully independent, automated processing to align with your workflows.


Our systems and software are built for high-accuracy inspection. Unlike manual processes, our vision measurement systems are incredibly accurate and consistent. That precision ensures the same results regardless of the operator performing the task and style differences. Coupled with their high resolution and point density, you get data you can have confidence in for any workpiece.


We've engineered our systems to withstand the rigors of a rugged production environment. Each features high-quality construction with sturdy materials and first-rate components to help ensure long life spans.


Our vision measuring systems include advanced technology that boosts accuracy and efficiency, from sub-pixel accurate measurements and proprietary CAD overlay comparisons to automation modules.

These systems also come with our proprietary VisionGauge® software for completely custom configurations and effective quality control. The tools are user-friendly and feature intuitive operation, ensuring even beginners can quickly and correctly capture the data they need.

Plus, our technology empowers time savings. For example, eliminate overlays since our systems seamlessly integrate with your existing CAD information. Our patented CAD Auto-Align feature automatically aligns your CAD file to the part being inspections. Then our patented CAD Auto-Pass/Fail functionality automatically computes deviations in real time and compares it to accepted tolerances to generate precise results, including a final Pass/Fail or Go/No-Go.

VisionGauge® Software Packages

All VISIONx, Inc. systems come complete with the VisionGauge® or VisionGauge® OnLine software packages. The software is easy to use for operators and can be completely automated by running pre-programmed routines for particular parts. The software contains dozens of powerful tools and features required in a vision measuring system, such as:

  • Simple or complex measurements
  • Image processing
  • Motorized stage control
  • Illumination control
  • Sub-pixel edge detection
  • Blob analysis (Counting and Sizing)
  • Pattern matching and registration
  • Color analysis
  • Optical character recognition and optical character verification (OCR/OCV)
  • Image overlays and comparison to tolerances
  • Reporting and DDE transfer of results
  • Support for digital I/O's
  • Many other features available!
